They remind me of the beach! A photo of me wearing them together:
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wooden box with crocheted cherry blossoms + ACTION PICS! on: April 09, 2009 01:41:19 AM

My sis crocheted the blossoms and sewed them on to a box with thin wooden slats for a traditional Japanese flavour.

I like to use it as a clutch Smiley
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Necklaces (NEW Afrikaana ones added!) on: April 07, 2009 09:15:42 PM

Not sure if I've see this type of crochet necklace on Craftster before. This was made by my talented twin sister. Hope it's ok that I'm posting for her because we share the same computer and it's more convenient to use the same account than to log in and out.

I really like this one as well.

Adding one more to the family... a blue country one!

And a sandy-coloured one

Plus two Afrikaana-inspired ones. Love the mix of prints and textures!

Hope you like them. Thanks for looking!
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cards- Heart Series on: April 06, 2009 07:56:56 PM

Just having fun with cutting hearts of all sizes and colours from felt and making cards with them.
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Flower Cards for Mothers' Day on: April 05, 2009 07:06:04 PM

I like the delightfully fresh colours.
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Papercraft Challenge (Woman/ the Female Form): Warrior Princess on: April 05, 2009 02:51:21 AM

This is a 3-piece collection with the concept of a 'Warrior Princess', done near the end of last year. The garments are constructed entirely from paper, and different techniques are used in each. I don't have any pics of the process, but I'll try to explain how they were made.

1st outfit:
This is a bustier dress inspired by chain mail. I created individual 'rings' that become malleable when linked, allowing me to sculpt the curves of the form.
The back:
Bust detail:
A concept board to show how the idea was developed:

2nd outfit:
This is a long white 'princess' gown made from strips of translucent paper (I think it's called vellum?), cinched at the waist by a woven belt. Detail:
Concept board:

3rd outfit:
The inner layer consists of a vest and skirt made from the special kind of paper that doesn't tear easily. For the outer armoured piece, I folded origami units from gold paper and joined them together using gold paper fasteners as studs. The back:
Top detail:
Concept board:

By the way, none of these garments are stuck/pinned/attached to the mannequins, so you can imagine how well-fitted to the mannequin form they must be. Thanks for looking!
